BOOM! Prosecutor Of Baltimore Six Utterly Destroyed As ‘Disastrous’ ‘Two-Bit Political Hack’

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby — the embattled young prosecutor whose quick announcement of serious charges against the “Baltimore Six” police officers came as a surprise to many legal experts — is coming under fresh fire for her actions. Two veteran prosecutors claim Mosby’s criminal filings against the Baltimore Six have produced “disastrous consequences.”

Writing in The Baltimore Sun, a former federal prosecutor in Maryland and a former official in the Justice Department have penned a scathing critique of Mosby’s perceived “rush to judgment” that they charge has corrupted the legal process and condemned otherwise good police officers.

Announcing the charges against six police officers after a week of protests, Ms. Mosby appears to have been driven by the politics of the moment rather than the strength of the evidence, oddly proclaiming to the youth of the city that “our time is now.” Ms. Mosby’s decision to subordinate her duty to do justice as a prosecutor to her role as a politician had two disastrous consequences.

Citing those “disastrous consequences” of alienating the police force and smearing decent officers, the pair of prosecutors call for a grand jury investigation into the death of Freddie Gray that would, essentially, enhance the integrity of the prosecution that the two legal experts conclude has thus far been based on “faulty evidence.”

As former federal prosecutors in Baltimore who routinely used the grand jury to investigate criminal conduct, we call on Ms. Mosby to conduct a full and fair grand jury investigation, not simply a one-day presentation in which the results are pre-determined. We call on her to put justice before politics and go where the evidence takes her, not where her constituents want her to go.

In addition to the scorching criticism of the novice Mosby by the two experienced prosecutors, Fox News Chief Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano has also leveled a blistering attack on the Baltimore State’s Attorney, dismissing her as a “two-bit political hack” who’s trying to undermine the First Amendment.

Appellate Court Nails NSA Spying and Patriot Act

Mayday, Mayday! A New York federal court just nailed the NSA for spying on Americans. In a 97-page ruling, the Second Circuit Court ruled that the heart and soul of the so-called Patriot Act, known as Section 215, is constitutionally flawed; and it cannot be legally interpreted as allowing mass snooping on the phone calls of U.S. citizens!

The timing of this May 2015 ruling is extremely significant since the Patriot Act is set to expire on June 1, 2015.

This is causing power craving, ultra-controlling politicians to have outright panic attacks. Unless they do something very quickly, they will be forced to honor constitutional rule of law. And, gasp, people can have private conversations again in America!

But don’t jump for joy yet. The political scoundrels have regrouped and are now pushing for a so-called reform measure called the Freedom Act. Only one problem: i’s worse than the Patriot Act. The so-called Freedom Act, if implemented, would, as Fox News analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano put it, “legitimize all spying all the time on all of us in ways that the Patriot Act fails to do. It is no protection of privacy; it is no protection of constitutional liberty. It unleashes American spies on innocent Americans in utter disregard of the Fourth Amendment.”

Ironically, the NSA’s data collection center is located in the town of Bluffdale, Utah. So what do you say it’s time to call everyone’s bluff. Let’s make it an acid test of who to support this election season. Even if a professing conservative supports either renewing the Patriot Act or the new phony Freedom Act, show him the Right Foot of Fellowship–and that includes Ted Cruz. Et Tu, Ted? As admirable as Senator Cruz is on many issues, if he is on the wrong side of this issue, he can’t be trusted on lesser issues. Hopefully the unwavering stand of Ted’s buddy Rand Paul will motivate Cruz to abandon his current inexplicable support for the Freedom Act, and to once again stand firm in supporting our Fourth Amendment rights.

Judge Andrew Napolitano’s repudiation of the Patriot Act in his May 14 column is constitutionally unassailable. He wrote, “The Patriot Act is the centerpiece of the federal government’s false claims that by surrendering our personal liberties to it, it can somehow keep us safe. The liberty-for-safety offer has been around for millennia and was poignant at the time of the founding of the American republic.

“The Framers addressed it in the Constitution itself, where they recognized the primacy of the right to privacy and insured against its violation by the government by intentionally forcing it to jump through some difficult hoops before it can capture our thoughts, words or private behavior.

“Those hoops are the requirement of a search warrant issued by a judge and based on evidence — called probable cause — demonstrating that it is more likely than not that the government will find what it is looking for from the person or place it is targeting. Only then may a judge issue a warrant, which must specifically describe the place to be searched or specifically identify the person or thing to be seized.

“None of this is new. It has been at the core of our system of government since the 1790s. It is embodied in the Fourth Amendment, which is at the heart of the Bill of Rights. It is quintessentially American.”

Wow! If we can only get our politicians to embrace constitutional chat like this, we might just get back our Constitutional Republic!

Napolitano went on to explain that The Patriot Act makes an unconstitutional end run around the search warrant requirement by employing language left intentionally vague so that the feds can interpret it any way they want. And to add insult to injury, they used a secret court called a FISA court to legitimize their illegitimate actions, far from the prying and probing eyes of We the People and what’s left of the Free Press, resulting in their ability to spy on anyone and everyone whenever they choose–and they chose to spy on everyone all the time–including having the Draconian ability to actually turn on our cell phones remotely, using them as listening devices–in real time!

This is the end of our video; but if you still are leaning toward replacing the Patriot Act with the Freedom Act, consider this: The NSA supports the Freedom Act!

Watch: A Federal Judge Just Threw Jet Fuel On The Firestorm Over Hillary’s Emails, Judge Nap Explains

For the first time, a federal court has taken action on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and reopened a case brought by a watchdog group trying to force the presidential candidate to release official communications she claimed were stored on a private email server.

The Washington Times reports that the move by Judge Reggie Walton came in response to revelations indicating that the former secretary of state had improperly “shielded her messages from valid open-records requests.” Ironically, both the U.S. State Department and Judicial Watch are on the same side in this case that seeks to search all of Mrs. Clinton’s emails to see whether any that were not disclosed, should have been.

The Times report quotes the head of Judicial Watch, noting the significance of the court’s action: “’This is the first case that’s been reopened,’ Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said Friday. ‘It’s a significant development. It points to the fraud by this administration and Mrs. Clinton.’”

As Fox News tells us, Judge Walton had previously dismissed the Judicial Watch request to make Mrs. Clinton’s emails public because he had been told the documents simply didn’t exist.

By clicking on the video above, you can see Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst, Judge Andrew Napolitano, explain the significance of the court’s reopening of the case and how it could hurt Hillary Clinton’s chances of keeping her official communications out of the public eye.

Judge Napolitano Destroys Hillary Clinton Amidst Allegations She Gave Out Favors In Return For Donations

The potentially damning book, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, by Peter Schweizer, is due to be released on May 5, but it is already causing a major stir in Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

The book accounts, in detail, the favors then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton exchanged for donations to her foundation. The New York Times is calling the book the “most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle still in its infancy.”

Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Napolitano joined host Megyn Kelly on The Kelly File to discuss the Clinton Foundation and the alleged quid pro quo status of its donations.

“Look, the essence of bribery is the quid pro quo. You do something for me, or in my behalf, and I exercise my official governmental powers in favor of you,” Napolitano said. “That’s what Senator Menendez was indicted for – having to do with visas and having to do with Medicare reimbursement. This has to do with the foreign policy and arguably the security of the nation.”

“If the version of the book that we have read [from the New York Times] stands up under scrutiny, the Justice Department must commence a criminal investigation of Mrs. Clinton’s behavior about the time period about which the book is written,” he added later in the interview with Kelly.

The scandals seem to keep piling up for Mrs. Clinton. On top of this new book, she is still battling the scandals of her hidden emails from her time as secretary of state and her roll in Benghazi. Not to mention all of the faux pas her campaign has committed since the announcement of her run for president in 2016.

BOMBSHELL Report Explodes In Hillary’s Face As Her Flimsy Email Excuse Totally Falls Apart

Image Credit: Twitter

After claiming that she managed her email account from a personal. private server for the “convenience” of being able to use a single device for all her digital communications, Hillary Clinton’s excuse for her highly unusual practice has fallen apart.

The Associated Press, which has filed suit demanding the full release of all of the former secretary of state’s work-releated emails, has just exposed Mrs. Clinton’s one-device rationale as a lie.

“Hillary Rodham Clinton emailed her staff on an iPad as well as a BlackBerry while secretary of state, despite her explanation she exclusively used a personal email address on a homebrew server so that she could carry a single device, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.”

The AP also reports that, contrary to what the likely presidential contender has maintained, Mrs. Clinton mingled personal and professional communications in her emails with top aide Huma Abedin, whose own email practices while at the State Department are under scrutiny.

“In reply to a message sent in September 2011 by adviser Huma Abedin to Clinton’s personal email account, which contained an AP story about a drone strike in Pakistan, Clinton mistakenly replied with questions that appear to be about decorations.”

Rep. Trey Gowdy, the GOP chairman of the House select committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks that left four Americans dead, said he was told that Clinton had wiped her email server “clean,” possibly some months ago.

As Western Journalism reported yesterday, the deletion of all emails from her personal server — a mass destruction apparently carried out at Ms. Clinton’s direction and in possible defiance of congressional subpoenas — could mean that Hillary has opened herself to obstruction of justice charges.

Fox News’ Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano Napolitano said that Mrs. Clinton has now admitted to a number of acts which might be considered crimes, but that the former Obama administration official could get away with what she’s done if no one in authority has the “courage” to pursue her.

The bombshell AP report notes that “Mrs. Clinton’s attorney said she had turned over to the State Department all work-related emails sent or received during her tenure and it would make no sense to turn over her server, since ‘no emails … reside on the server or on any backup systems associated with the server.’”
